Copenhagen Card

copenhagen card

The Copenhagen Card is a great card to have if visiting Copenhagen for the first time. The cost of the card will pay off in great dividends in both money, time and frustration.  What is it? Well, it is a discount card that gives you access to 72 museums and attractions throughout the greater Copenhagen area including free tickets on the metro, bus and train system. You can also get 10% - 20% off meals at certain restaurants.

Some of the biggest attractions like Tivoli (110kr), Tycho Planetarium (150kr), Zoologisk Have (180kr) and Carlsberg Brewery (99kr), Canal tour (80kr) are all included.  These 5 in themselves will cost you 619kr in entrance fees and the bus and train tickets will add another 72 kr. And there is much much more. A 24 hour pass will cost you 389kr.  Of course remember you can do all the attractions in one day so consider what you plan on doing and if it will pay to have a pass. Usually it pays for itself quite quickly.

With the Copenhagen Card you just show your card on any of the buses, trains or metro and on you go. No need to punch the ticket or be aware of what zone you are in, since it is all covered. Once you have purchased the ticket it is good for either 24, 48 or 72 hours from the time you first use it.

Where to purchase the Copenhagen Card

The card can be purchased either online and you get a voucher, which you will turn it at the airport when you arrive or at the Tourist Board in Central Copenhagen. You can also have the card sent to you in the post if you would rather have it on hand when you get here.

The card can also be bought at many of the hotels, tourist offices and hostels around Denmark. Visit the Copenhagen Card  main site for sales offices.

You also get a very comprehensive guide on all the attractions and a city map. There is now also an app that you can get for your smart phone, so that you can have the information at your fingertips.

Price for the card is as follows:

24 hour     Adult     389kr  Children     199kr

48 hour     Adult     549kr  Children   279kr

72 hour     Adult     659kr  Children    329kr

120 hour    Adult     889kr  Children    449kr

Get Your Copenhagen Card Below

The card can only be used 1 time at each attraction per day. That means you can not visit the same place twice in one day. Can not go to Tivoli during the day and return that evening. But if you have a multiday ticket you can get entry again the next day. So a 3 day ticket will allow you to visit the same place 3 times just not on the same day.

If you have children under the age of 10, two of them can be included on the adult ticket for free.

Travel Allowance

The card allows you to travel all over the Copenhagen region as far north as Helsingør and Gilleleje and west to Roskilde and south to Køge, so you have access to a lot of the atrractions outside of the city of Copenhagen. You can use it on the bus, train, metro and even the harbor bus. That includes your airport transfers too. 

What Attractions are included?

Please double check entrance prices since they change quite often. Below is a general guideline of prices but they may be 5-10 kr off depending on time of year or price fluctuations.  You can also see what new attractions have been added by going to the above link.
